DBasia.news – Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher criticized Virgil van Dijk. He was criticized for Van Dijk who made a blunder that resulted in a goal against Leeds United.
Liverpool host Leeds United in the first week of the 2020/2021 Premier League match. Even though they had to work hard, the Reds were finally able to win.
Four Liverpool were scored by Mohamed Salah (4th minute, 33 ′, 88 ′) and Virgil van Dijk (20 ′). The three Leeds goals were contributed by Jack Harrison (12 ′), Patrick Bamford (30 ′), and Mateusz Klich (66 ′).
Van Dijk could indeed score Liverpool's second goal with a header. However, this 29-year-old player also caused Leeds to score against the Reds.
Van Dijk failed to control the ball well in the heart of the Liverpool defense. As a result, Patrick Bamford was able to equalize 2-2 in the 30th minute.
The mistake made by Van Dijk made Carragher very upset. He called the former Southampton defender too arrogant of the Leeds players.
“This is a brilliant match. It could even end up with a score of 7-7. Alisson is not happy. He's among the center-backs there. Virgil van Dijk, he is too arrogant, “said Carragher as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Another Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness is also upset with Van Dijk. However, he can feel relieved because Van Dijk also scored the previous goal.
“Van Dijk is really annoying, but he also scored goals in this match,” said Souness.
